The Party of Hate, Violence and Cancel Culture, the Brutal Truth
Jan. 20, 2017. A spate of violence erupted on Friday in the nation’s capital, as protesters damaged storefronts, threw rocks and bricks at police officers and lit a limousine on fire.
Many of the protesters were dressed in black, wore face masks and carried flags associated with anti-fascist groups. They congregated on a series of streets just blocks from the parade where Donald J. Trump passed as he made his way to the White House for the first time as president, their activities creating a distraction as television networks played live footage of the clashes.
“We’re not peaceful,” said one of the masked protesters who, like many others who clashed with the police, ran away after being approached by reporters.
